Disposable KerfMaker

06-14-2011 08:35 AM by rance | 32 comments »

Well, yes, the Kerf Maker is a very clever jig. I have a different take on its manufacture. I see a reason to have several, NO, Wait… Why not make them DISPOSABLE? :) I had a need to use one today so why not make one. Here it is:  I used a stick of about 1/2” square pine. Yeah, Pine(or is that Poplar?). And some double sided tape. Cut the stick in half. (I’m kinda protective of my tape. Can ya tell?)  Then stick both halves together with the tape. &n...

Cajon drum, for my son the drummer boy

11-05-2010 04:55 PM by PaBull | 19 comments »

The photos below give an overview of this technique and the pi...
